My love of shortwave began with an old Philco radio at the age of ten. A couple of years later I earned my Novice license and was issued WN5SAP in New Orleans, LA. After high school I joined the Air Force and was a MARS operator for over six years.

Joining corporate life for major manufacturers around the country, and later owning four businesses in New Orleans, I was out of radio for 32 years. After retiring at the age of 49 in 2000, I decided to get my Ham license back. Morse Code was never a problem for me, in two weeks I was back up to speed. I love CW, always will. My FISTS # is 11731 and my SKCC # is 287.

The day after Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast in 2005, I relayed a message sent from FEMA to the Mayor of New Orleans - Ray Nagin.  The communication was a very important message from President George W. Bush.  Since then, I have twelve TV news stories and numerous newspaper articles that outline some of the moments I have had with Ham Radio.

I am the Event Coordinator for the Titanic Special Event Station WØS in Branson, MO. and also the W4S in Pigeon Forge, TN.  The next event will be on April 10-12, 2015, so watch QRZ and eHam Calendar of Events.

Yes, everyone calls me "SAP" and I prefer that on and off the air.  The FCC knew my sense of humor long ago.  Everything I build or own has "SAP" incorporated in the name.

Currently I have a Tri-Ex 70 foot electric self-supporting tower with a Mosley Pro 67B and Cushcraft 50S5 Six Meter Beam on top.  One sixty foot telephone pole and two 50 foot telephone poles are placed along the North fence line for a 160 Meter all coax Double Bazooka.  A 60 foot Glen Martin tower with Hazer holds my homebrew halfwave three element 30 Meter Monster Beam, I call the "Trizilla."  The reflector element is 48.5 feet long.  My Prototype is also on the South Tower of W1AW.  I also have a Fullwave 80 Meter Delta Loop hung vertical at 60 feet with a switching stube that turns the loop into a Two Wave Length Bi-Square on 40 Meters.  Another Fullwave 80 Meter Delta Loop horizontal up 50 feet.  Click to view my station at http://www.tparca.org/bellringers/Roster/n0sap.htm

73 and 6146, "SAP"
